Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Although BottomFeeder doesn't exude sex appeal, it's a reliable, easy-to-use RSS newsreader.

The interface is an unadorned, Windows-style box with three primary panes, one of which offers a tree directory of feed categories and the feeds within each. You can switch among a number of viewing configurations to suit your preference for reviewing or reading posts. The app has a number of pre-installed feeds, which encompass the usual topic suspects, among them technology, politics, and Dilbert comics. Adding feeds is simple, and the program reacts quickly to update feeds.

BottomFeeder also has two particularly handy features: one for e-mailing a post to someone, the other for posting to your blog from within the newsreader. BottomFeeder is a big boy, too big for our tastes at a whopping 21MBs.

Still, as a free application, BottomFeeder will suit the needs of any level user wanting a solid newsreader.
